Talking Jay Westerdal Posts About IDN's

...the hard way:

Have you every wanted to check if a domain was available for a common word for phrase in a different language. Asking us how to do a whois lookup on an IDN domain name is actually a common question in our support ticket system. So I thought I would let the world know how to do it. Perhaps you want to look at the whois record for “world map” in Korean. Here is a step-by-step instruction on how to do it.

1. Head over to Google Translate.
2. Enter in your words, such as “world map”.
3. Select the language you want to translate into. Example: “English to Korean”
4. If your results look like, “????”, then you need to install a language pack for your operating system. On WindowsXP it is really easy, just follow these instructions for the Microsoft Language Packs on Microsoft’s website. You can enable this from your control panel in a few minutes.
5. Once you have the translated words and it will look like a foreign language and it can be copied and pasted it into domaintools search box. Then the last step is to append “.com” to it. Then hit search and it will auto-translate it into the IDN script.


http://blog.domaintools.com/2007/11/...an-idn-domain/

Conclusion: 100% misleading title, he is finding free IDN domains using Google translator

Re: Jay Westerdal Posts About IDN's

Good post it creates awareness & it shows progress that mainstream domainers are interested in the same things that this site wrote about 2 years ago.

Re: Jay Westerdal Posts About IDN's

With newer versions of linux, there is unicode support in the terminal and IDN support in network information tools.

For example, you can open a terminal and give this command just by pasting the unicode word / domain name into the terminal:


whois ハート.com

Re: Jay Westerdal Posts About IDN's

Jay's post is very interesting, in that:

a) He is regging IDNs
b) He doesn't seem to have a clue how to do it ...

Its like going back in time to before IDNF existed and we all had weird and wonderful ways to attempt to locate and register IDNs.

Love the guy that commented:

-----
Wait a tick,
It’s possible to register international characters? …
I wonder if this requires any special DNS server configuration(s).
------

I wonder if this level of ignorance is still prevalent amongst the ASCII population.

I would set yourself a deadline of Saturday.

There is a lot of buzz out there at the moment. If we make decent sales on Saturday that could quickly turn to hysteria!

Yeah, I was unduly influenced by the dynamite fishing king. Patience is not something we have much of either.
